  1. Let me start by saying that I absolutely love this wonderful feature in Affinity apps: to be able to filter typefaces according to how I organize them in Font Book by collections. However, there's a little bug. Here's what I discovered. In Character panel, when "All Fonts" option is active (by default), every typeface in the list shows up with correct number of fonts in the family. Once any other collection from Font Book, available in that list, is selected, every typeface now shows with two times more fonts. Every weight is being duplicated in the list. So I have two Regular, two Italic, two Bold and etc. I believe there's something with (re)sorting/(re)appending items to lists/arrays and it's just a very small cosmetic issue. But anyway, it would be great to see this fixed, as the feature itself, it is really great and very helpful. Bug persists across all three apps. Versions 1.10.1 and 1.10.4 on macOS Catalina, Big Sur and Monterey.
  2. It would be really helpful if it was possible to adjust font size, leading and tracking etc. using the up arrow and down arrow on the keyboard.
  3. Selecting a font collection in the Character panel shows the previously selected collection, instead of the one selected. So, for example, if I select the "Sans" collection I see whatever was previously on (e.g.: All Fonts), then I select the "Serif" collection and I get to see list of fonts included in the Sans collection. Affinity Designer 1.8.3 macOS 10.14.6
  4. Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher I'm not sure if this is a feature or a bug so I'll ask the question. When I have a cell or a number of cells in a table selected, I can change the border - of whichever border-selection is currently selected in the Table panel - of those cells via the Decorations tab of the Character panel. Is this something that was deliberate? It's a kind-of-nice short-cut if I don't have the Tables panel open - even though I can't choose which border selection I want from the Character panel - but I don't know if having it at the Character level is appropriate. I'm not sure where would be a better place, it just seems a bit odd.
  5. In Affinity Designer my character panel will not open. I click on the tab and in the drop down menu and it simply does not open. I have tried to find where I can do a reinstall. Does Affinity permit a reinstall? At this point I'm sorry I bought it. If this isn't resolved I'll just go back to Illustrator for good. i do a lot of type layout.
  6. The Text Height field in the character panel could be more convenient if it was a +/- field instead of a pure dropdown menu. It's also not possible to change the values of any of the fields by more than +/- 1 by keyboard arrow input. If you press your arrow more than once your selected artwork starts moving up and down instead of the value of the setting. Thanks so much for this great piece of software and please never turn into an evil company like Adobe ;)
  7. Sometimes when I'm in the Character Panel I can down arrow to step through all the fonts. Other times I find my text moves when I down arrow. It's now moving the text, anyone have a suggestion on how to get it back to stepping thought the fonts?
